KINGS of THRACE. Lysimachos. 305-281 BC. Stater (Gold, 8.47 g 11), Uncertain mint, struck circa 290s- 280s BC or, perhaps, as an early posthumous issue. Head of the deified Alexander III to right, wearing taenia and with horn of Ammon over his ear. Rev. ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΛΥΣΙΜΑΧΟΥ Athena seated to left on throne, shield by her side, holding Nike in her right hand and resting her left in her lap, spear behind her to left; in exergue, ΜΕ ΔΙ; to left, eagle’s head to left. Müller -. Thompson -. A superb example, apparently unpublished with these monograms. Lustrous and particularly nice, virtually as struck.
